Humans are designed to achieve goals, but we live in a very disruptive, distraction-filled culture. By design, every single person is a goal set-up. That’s why having a daily checklist is good not only for your business but also for your mental health. Lists provide a road map for our mind to follow in order to arrive at the destination of revenue, rest and resources. And every road map has a destination, or, in this case, a goal.

According to a Harvard Business Review article, people typically have upwards of 15 ongoing goals or projects going on at the same time. Our culture tells us we can multitask, but that is a myth. To be successful, our checklists and daily to-do lists help us manage these activities so we can give our full attention to one thing at a time.

Lists are nothing new. We each had our first list growing up and was with homework — We were given a number of tasks to complete within by a deadline. It’s proven by neuroscientists that lists, especially lists that are being accomplished, are therapeutic. Many people become anxious when they have uncompleted tasks on a to-do list. Incomplete or pending tasks undermine our confidence to be effective.

A list helps us organize our life and our time. They also provide us with focus and increase our self-esteem, which releases the pleasure-inducing hormone oxytocin. Lists also help reduce anxiety It is also healthy for us because help us manage our time better.

People who are well-organized reap the benefits of organization by being are often the best earners as well in this multitasking focused society. Our lists keep us focused on the most important thing.
